Charles Oliveira is a dangerous fighter
Brazilian jiu-jitsu expert Charles Oliveira is widely considered by many mixed martial art fans to be a potential greatest of all time fighter (GOAT), based on his UFC statistics. The versatile fighter who is nicknamed “Do Bronx” has been fighting as an MMA fighter professionally in the UFC since 2008, and he also has an amazing record. He has won a total of 33 fights and has lost 8 fights. It is also remarkable to note that most of his losses occurred at the beginning of his career. Oliveira has been on a winning streak since 2018, and only one of his 11 consecutive victories in the UFC was a draw.
Michael Chandler, Dustin Poirier, and Justin Gaethje were among the top fighters he defeated during his winning streak. He was stripped of the lightweight Championship because he did not meet the weight quota, but now he has a chance to regain the title against Islam Makhachev. It will not be an easy match for Oliveira however, as Makhachev also has an impressive record of 22 wins to just 1 loss in his professional career. Makhachev has never faced a high-profile fighter, though, which makes this fixture a very interesting one. He will have legendary fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov in his corner as his coach for the fight, who will definitely share his big match-winning strategies with him.
Sterling looking to continue to impress
When Aljamain Sterling was given a chance at the Bantamweight title, he had a record of 19 wins to 3 losses. He defeated Petr Yan who was the champion at the time, in a match where he was the underdog. He met Petr Yan again in another title match, and to the shock of the whole world, defended his title for the first time. He has the chance to do that again in UFC 280, against Tyler Jeffrey Dillashaw. The American fighter held the UFC Bantamweight championship title twice. He competed for the flyweight division’s championship title in his most recent match, but failed to win it. However, he will have another shot at winning a title as he faces Sterling at UFC 280.
